In My Mailbox (5/2)


Time for another In My Mailbox!

No video this week, because I really should be doing homework instead of blogging and videos take a while. Hopefully next week I'll have some interesting books to show you guys, and time to make a video, although I'm off to Newcastle for the weekend with my parents, so it might be a late post on Sunday night. Anyway, this week I got:

"Dreamfever", book 4 in the Fever series by Karen Marie Moning. I'd been warned that book 3 finished on a cliffhanger, so when I was a couple of chapters from the end, I went on a mission around Edinburgh to find the next one! So far it's been great, but I'm getting to the end of it now, and I'm a bit nervous about not having book 5 to go on to. I really shouldn't be buying more books just now, but I know I'll need to read the next one when I get to the end of this! I have a feeling that, once I've finished the series, I'll really enjoy reading it a second time, when I know the overall ending and can relax, knowing for sure whether to trust or distrust various characters.

I also bought "Ocean's Touch" by Denise Townsend, which I reviewed this afternoon on the blog - if you scroll down on the main page, it's right there. I liked the story, but it didn't quite live up to what I'd hoped it would be.

I thought that was going to be it for the week, but last night Sophia at Fiction Vixen posted a list of ebooks she'd found free on Amazon, and some that sounded fun were free on Amazon UK too, so I grabbed a couple for light reading. They were:

Gifts of the Blood, by Vicki Keire
The Frenchman's Woman, by Taylor Lee
A Hint of Rapture, by Miriam Minger
Catch Me If You Can, by Nina Bruhns
Lucky in Love, by Carolyn Brown

What did you guys get in your mailboxes/postboxes this week? Does anyone have some snow, too? It feels like all of the UK except Scotland does today, and I'm a bit disappointed.

OOOH my god I LOOOVED the fever series. Like seriously, have all books in hand because they have major cliffhangers. And don't worry if you're not into it at first, it took until book 2 for me but then it became like crack!
